Summary
  • "For every survivor of a crime, there is a criminal who forces his way into the victim's thoughts long after the act has been committed."
  • "Reporters weren't allowed into Kosovo during the war without permission of the Yugoslavian government, but Matthew McAllester went anyway. In Beyond the Mountains of the Damned he tells the story of Pec, Kosovo's most destroyed city and the site of the earliest and worst atrocities of the war, through the lives of two men--one Serb and one Kosovar. They had known each other and been neighbors for years before one visited tragedy on the other. With a journalist's eye for detail McAllester asks the questions of war: What kind of men could devastate an entire city, killing whole families, and feel no sense of guilt? The answer lies in the culture of gangsterism and ethnic hatred that began with the collapse of Yugoslavia."--Jacket
Summary
Tells the story of Kosovo's most war-devastated city through the lives of two neighbors, one a Serb and the other a Kosovar, who viewed the conflict respectively as a desperate struggle for survival and an exercise of power
